Easter Quilt 1992

 I was looking through some of my quilts today and I ran across this Easter quilt from 1992.  I like to piece cut and repiece solids way back then.  Circle of quilting life.  What artwork.LOL  So much for permanent ink. 

A Box of New Crayons

My quilt A Box of New Crayons is quilted and bound and washed.  That was a really fun and fast quilt.

My Solid Phase

This is the next quilt I am working on.  I think I will call it my "Solid Phase".  I had forgotten how much fun playing with solids could be.  I hope everyone is having a great evening

New Box of Crayons

Remember the smell of a new box of crayons?  I love that smell.  I got out my solid fabrics and played this weekend.  I felt like I had opened a new box of crayons

Collaborative Blocks

Eight friends decided last year to make a Collaaborative Quilt. We all made blocks and swapped them. A year later not one quilt has been started. Two friends decided they were not interested in participating so they gave me their blocks and fabric. I am a happy girl. I put some of the blocks up on the wall today. what do you think? Where do I begin? Looks like a challenge to me. I diving in the deep end. Splash

Wave runner grows

Making blocks and adding them to the design wall.  I will begin sewing the blocks together soon.  This has been very liberating
